A project for SPARK in collaboration with photographer, Tom Nicholson, featuring the stories of refugees in Turkey, Jordan, Iraq (KR-I) and Lebanon. The project aims to present a counter narrative for refugees, present their personal successes and demonstrate what can be achieved if people - particularly women - are given an opportunity.
I researched, coordinated, interviewed, audio recorded and produced this podcast series. It was edited by The Media Booth.
